House Concert - Hamish Strathdee
Excellent young performer, Hamish Strathdee’s playing has been described as being of “the
highest standard” (Soundboard USA) and “thoroughly engaging” with a “gloriously warm and rich”
sound (Classical Guitar Magazine USA). In 2019 Hamish returns to Australia for his National Tour
featuring music from France, Germany, Cuba and Spain.
Explore the turmoil and triumphs of battle in mid-nineteenth century France with Coste’s dramatic
fantasy, then delve into the world of baroque keyboard music with Bach’s first Clavier Partita. Be
immersed in the atmospheric character of Japanese Impressionism, juxtaposed with bursts of
rhythmic energy from Cuban composer Leo Brouwer. Finally, experience José’s fiery fourmovement
sonata for guitar, featured on Hamish’s critically acclaimed debut album, Impressions
